Beautiful ‘Double Wide’ Tiny House w/ Additional Slide Out!

This is a BEAUTIFUL ‘double wide’ tiny house with an additional slide out. It’s called the Wohlwagen XL and it’s designed and built by Wohlwagen in Goettingen, Germany. Beautiful, isn’t it?

Wohlwagen XL Tiny House: Twin Caravan with Almost 500 Sq. Ft. Floor Area!

You can turn and adjust the stove. The television can also easily be stored in the ceiling whenever you’re not using it!

The TV is completely adjustable so you can pretty much use it from anywhere in the house.

The kitchen features a 5-burner stove with a large oven so you can cook big dinners.

The dining table is big enough for the whole family. You’re probably wondering about the doors. The one on the right is the walk-in closet/laundry room. The one on the left is the bathroom.

Perfectly placed windows around your bed so you can gaze at the stars/clouds.

Your very own fold down work station:

When you’re done, you can put your desk away if you want to!

The bed also stows away into the wall so you can use the space for whatever you want. You can dance, do yoga, let the kids play, have a party, etc.

The bathroom not only has dual sinks… But it even has dual showers!

The walk in closet:

The slide out which is pulled in and out manually by two people.

Here is the floor plan (measurements are in centimeters).

    I just love these tiny little homes, I have a trailer, 1968 that I would love to do this with but not to sure of the cost and if it’s worth doing .Ilive in Florida and my property is in NJ, own the land with this monster on it, it a single wide trailer and needs tons of work.My property is 25×125 and taxes are only 35.00 a year.Do you have any suggestions for me?

    • James D. September 7, 2017, 10:14 pm

      Single wide? I take it you’re referring to a mobile home?

      If so, it depends… If it was a good quality model to begin with then it may be worth remodeling but if it was a low quality model then it probably has deteriorated too much to be worth working on…

      The good ones tended to look more like site build homes, with a higher-pitch roof and overhang, sturdy siding, and a ceiling of 8-feet or more where it meets the outside walls, for example. While the low quality ones just looked like trailers…

      Though, the one exception to this are pre-1980 metal-clad homes with the eccentric bay windows and what many would consider wacky roof lines by modern standards… But these are also known for a lack of insulation and it can add up to 50% of your remodeling costs to have them properly insulated…

      Basically, approach it as you would a remodel of a traditional house… If you can, see if you can have a professional contractor or similar to give it a look over and get a cost estimate of what a remodel may cost you… It’s a lot easier to make a decision with solid numbers to compare and work with…

      Also, mind the zoning for the area to be sure even when remodeled that it would be legal to live in it full time or not… New Jersey has some pretty restrictive laws regarding living in RV’s, some have been on the books for only the last 7 years, and where they can be parked… Properties that have been grandfathered in may be allowed to exist but not be lived in… So best to make sure of that before committing any funds…

        Oh golly, even before looking at the pictures I decided to find out the meaning of wohlwagen on Google Translate. Automatically determined that it was a word from Xhosa language and translated to, get rid of it. LOL

        Switched to German as the language and got translation as well-car.

        Definitely doesn’t look like a car to me… rotflmao.

        • James D. September 9, 2017, 9:36 am

          Wohlwagen, not Wohl-Wagen, actually loosely translates to Caravan, which is what most European countries will call a trailer type RV…

          European countries have different road restrictions and historical influences that effect the designs these are built around and so they tend to look a bit differently than what people in the states may be used to…

          Especially, when it comes to Tiny Houses on wheels as they tend to model them more after historical Caravans, Wagons, Shepherd Huts, Gypsy/Vardo styles, etc.

          Though, like in the states, Tiny Houses also gets used as a platform to be creative as well with entirely new design and concepts…

    • G Randall September 8, 2017, 11:46 am

      The thing with trailers older than 1972, maybe 1974 is that they typically used aluminum wiring. Aluminum wiring has been responsible for many mobile home fires due to the oxidation that occurs within the outlets and boxers where connections are made. The oxidation causes sparking and sparking and overheating which doesn’t mix with 50 year old studs and paper thin paneling. If you were seriously looking at remodeling you MUST replace wiring if it is aluminum and that can be cost prohibitive due to the nature of how the wiring is routed.

      • J. S. Ayer September 13, 2017, 11:23 pm

        German for a house-trailer (British caravan) is Wohnwagen; Wohn means “dwell” and wagen means “wagon” and can be car or truck or trailer or perambulator, depending on circumstances. “Wohlwagen” is a bit of a play on words, the first element meaning “well done”.

      • Erin November 28, 2017, 8:21 am

        Isn’t that the truth! We just moved into our new house this year after spending 10 years too long in a late 60’s trailer that was on the property we bought. A shed would have been safer. Every time you smell burning wires you’d figure out which outlet it was, and most of the time the wire was too brittle and short to replace so we’d just end up tying it off and loosing an outlet. We tore it apart and the studs are not even 2×2. Never again.

      @Donna, if you’re looking for information and ideas on remodeling/restoring an old mobile home, check out the Facebook group “Restoring Vintage Trailers”. It’s a closed group, but easy to get into.

      Also check out mobilehomeliving.org. Lots of information and ideas for remodeling and/or decorating.

      Lady you have a diamond in the rough. an old mobile home on a small lot with the taxes almost nothing.
      Rebuild that sucker but start and do one half and finish it and then do the other half , do not tear it down and lose your grandfathers rights.
      Use a builder who knowns mobile homes and not some dumb heads like people who talk to make noise and do not know what they are even talking about. When you are finished it will still be an old home for tax purposes and not a new one so save the MH identifacation plates and keep them uncovered so the inspector can be shown them if he even asks but I do not think he will its grandfathered in years ago and really cheap.
      My degree in Mobile homes is I have owned hundreds of them and have even purchased 52 of them on tax sales of less than $200.00 for home land and all . One Bank sold me 22 mobile homes for nothing down and gave me $42,00.00 tax free cash to take them. They just wish to get rid of them. I never insure a MH unless it ‘s one that has been assumed from a finance company I just buy a few more with the money I would waste for insurance every year. Lady I would hope the home is so bad the county will be glad for you to improve it and bring it back to a little darling.
      Make sure the rebuilder has done more than 25 MH rebuilds and is not a “knows nothing ” about Mobile Homes type of business man.
      They are Diamonds not 14 K Gold , cheaper housing is and has always been in demand, but not everyone knows how or wishes to learn before knocking MH’s.
      Bet there is not any tires or axels under your rig but do not fret you are not going to pull it down any highway to a new location so its not a mobile home so what is it now ,still a mobile home that’s what Grandpaw said it was and what it must stay with until its destroyed so do not destroy it and expect to build it back , they do not like that it does not have to pay a lot of tax fee’s to state and county so they have added words that restrict you from rebuilding, so when is a rebuild not an improvement.
      I have been up against counties and state’s in court many times and have never lost one case, every time they have to eat it , I do not waste time fighting a loser. You do not have a loser.

      Oh by the way I built my first vacation small home in 1967 and it was fiberglass construction and built in my plant in Hattem, Netherlandse so I like small homes and live in a Chateau De Jackass myself but plan on living small soon.
      Lady to set up financing is a snap to improve your property as you probably own the old heap free and clear , Jimmy Napiers was my mentor back in 1988 in Chipley Fl for MH parks and R.V parks but he is now retired but plenty of his students are active and you can call me I work for free as I never work for money to help anyone , I only work for compensation for businesses that I own. If mobile Homes are so bad why would Warren Buffet own 62 Mobile home related businesses ?

      • Anita December 26, 2017, 7:21 pm

        Hello I’m very much in a bit of a situation. I live in New Jersey. I am looking at tiny homes and I don’t believe I would even be able to get one. I have bad credit and have been told I have MS and on a very small fixed income very small. I don’t want to be a burden on my only one son who is 21. I don’t own anything and may be a single women again but would love to look at my future so if I get worse I can leave my current situation and proceed on to my own . So a free mobil home or a tiny house would be good for me. I have been trying to look in my area for farm land to put a home on if I could get approved to either rent or lease or buy . I am 48 and I just want to find a place to live without any stress. I did start looking in my area all over I live in South Jersey , Camden County . If there is any advice for me please let me know.
        Thank You
        Anita Day

        • Martin L. McDonald December 27, 2017, 9:10 pm

          Anita , plenty of people have homes and money as well as land.
          Suggest you find someone who would like for you to live on their land and use a septic connection plus water provided and put your household garbage in their garbage service. You in turn barter for the rent to be paid with your services to them for work on their property you need to obtain this first. Second you need to write an honest ad to the people in the area that you would like to live stating that you would like to assume payments on their older mobile home be honest tell it truthfully as it is , I have taken over payments on many mobile homes and my favorite is to pay $100. plus one case of beer and a case of coke. People who can wish to help you and that’s what you are seeking and plenty of young couples are moving up to a large home and just want to be rid of the Mobile home and the note attached. Do a search for mobile home movers in your area and find out what is the going price for a move within your county to the land you have arrangements for and barter with the owner to work for his wife for the amount of the moving fee at their private home make sure the business owner is middle age 55 plus and has a profitable business and he can barter out the cost to do his wife and family a good loving favor by getting your labor for almost free or not having to pay out any direct cash for the labor. Remember a small home is easier to move try a 14 X 40 2 bedroom 1 bath and you fix it up into your home and pay your notes as it comes due. you will have several years to pay and that’s good so no one but the lien holder will ever be able to take it away from you and they just want their money paid on time as called for not the home, yes you will have to pay the Homeowners insurance policy but make sure you have a contract for sale from the person who is listed as a buyer on the title giving you the rights to reregister the vehicle when your note is paid in full and at that point you can put the mobile home into your name and not have to worry about anything except for the barter arrangements with the land owner for whom you work.
          If you are happy its likely they will be also.
          You simply have to beleive in yourself and that money is not everything , your word you stand by thru thick and thin.
          Did you know that lot rent is +/- $305. per/m in a commercial park , so stay away from a park and barter to work for $150. P/ m @ $15.00 per hour, that’s a living wage or that you are making $30. per hour which do you like best.
          The last deal I put togather was to pay $3100. for a nice single wide cash and move it to a rv park where the lady received a job as assistent manager for about $15,000. per year working from her kitchen and showing the customers where and which lot to park on and to take their money and write a receipt. She paid no electrict bill no water no heat free telephone free tv and could sell all the fire wood her husband could harvest for her to be burned and paid for by the customers at the camp ground She paid me for the mobile home I financed for her and is one of my most trusted customers with instant credit when she and her husband want or need it and they are tipical and are always moving up on the range of things wanted in life. She looked at a lot of ragged out homes before she found a jewel.
          You must beleive in yourself, then you can make it happen.
          Even Trump beleived he could so he did.

    This is the most luxurious/biggest mobile house I have seen. And it’s beautiful. I went to the website, wanted to download the “Specifications and prices.pdf” but oddly, it leads to a page “This domain name has just been registered.” which clearly is wrong, as the domain works for the other pages…
    Am wondering how they make the roof rain-proof once both house parts are connected (and the slide out!)?? But as it’s german made I believe it will be fool proof, lol.
    So yeah, in every regard, I love this thing, just can’t download the pricelist…

    • James D. September 7, 2017, 7:46 am

      It’s visible in the photos that the structures are sealed together with an overlap trim on both the exterior and interior… The roof piece is similar to how roofs are normally done with the center piece shedding water to either side so nothing hits the center seam…

      While the slide outs have their own roofs, which is something most don’t do, and probably relies on the angle to ensure water is shed away from where the exterior seal is located… It’s more a question of being water tight when the slide outs are pushed in as that roof line means there will be a gap unless there’s a overlap flap put in place while it’s being moved…

      • Alan September 8, 2017, 1:01 pm

        Shedding water from vertically falling rain is pretty easy. Its the wind-driven rain that can get under the overlap trim unless there is a positive sealing system. I would also pitch the roof a bit to prevent standing water, which can seep by most seals. If it freezes, then standing water turning to ice can destroy your seals too. This is a solvable problem and shouldn’t detract from the beautiful design and construction.

        • James D. September 11, 2017, 8:31 pm

          Alan, solvable? Not exactly, it can be managed but you’ll never solve it because you will always have to do maintenance on the slide out and the seal…

          Things like rubber seals will eventually erode and need to be replaced and anything mechanical will eventually break down and need to be fixed.

          Tolerances are the main issue as water can get in a number of ways besides simple rain… Like mist, fog, condensation, water flowing along the walls of the house, water splashing, etc.

          It doesn’t help that most slide outs have flat roofs and you’d be lucky if they include a retractable awning, which won’t be a durable as a dedicated roof and won’t protect from any rain that comes from the sides…

          While once the water gets in the design of slide outs don’t make it easy for them to dry out and shed the water… So the seal needs to be basically perfect all the time and that’s hard to maintain… Especially, if you neglect to always extend the slide outs all the way, as you can never forget human error…

          This design does introduce a roof on the slide out but you have to be always sure that they are fully extended out or you’re leaving a gap for water to get in…

          Slide outs are also a costly addition to a design… Thus why you don’t see them widely offered in tiny houses…

    • Nina September 7, 2017, 8:10 am

      You are right, the link doesn’t work. But I’ve found the price on the german version of the site, it is – fully equipped – exactly 111 662.- Euros. Free delivery in Germany.

  • Marsha Cowan September 7, 2017, 10:16 am

    I would hardly call it tiny, but it is extremely well designed. It packs a lot of ammenities in a small place with lots of versitility. It’s very pretty, too.

  • Carol Perry September 7, 2017, 10:25 am

    This Double Wide Tiny Home is just beautiful! It certainly does not look like it is tiny in any respect! It has all the features anyone would want in their home! Love the fact You can stow away Your bed & Your workspace into a wall/cabinet! The tv can be watched in any part of the home! Love the closet space that is so huge! I have never seen such a large closet in a tiny home before! Just love his place! Thank You for sharing!🏡

  • Dawn September 7, 2017, 11:07 am

    I think that bath pic is two pics side by side.

    • James D. September 7, 2017, 10:16 pm

      Yes, the cut offed shower stall shows that to be true, good catch there Dawn…

    • Dyane November 25, 2017, 8:20 pm

      It looks like a mirror that reflects and looks like two baths??

  • Sarah September 9, 2017, 1:10 pm

    Seating for 6, sleeping for two, guess the rest of the family sleeps on the floor…..Throwback to the ’50s, not my pick.

    • James D. September 11, 2017, 8:38 pm

      Sarah, there’s only 4 seats around the dining table… Not six…

      For bedding, you’re forgetting the couch area can be converted into a sleeping area… So this covers at least 4…

      Besides, there’s room in there to put in additional beds if you wanted it to support more people… Like that area next to the bed with the shelving can be replaced with a Murphy bed that can also still have shelving on one side… They’re not exactly using every square inch in this place, so some room to spare for other things…

    • James D. September 11, 2017, 8:41 pm

      Oh, but there’s a possible caveat… Most European countries have fairly strict weight limits and many of their roads are still pretty small… So they can’t make them as heavy or quite as big as is possible in the states…

  • Zoe A Schoppa September 9, 2017, 4:06 pm

    This is a very interesting concept and is very attractive. The descriptions on the photos talk about children but in such a large “tiny home” I only see one bed (without any privacy). Where do the theoretical children sleep?

    • James D. September 11, 2017, 8:42 pm

      Layouts can be customized, but the couch area looks like it can easily be converted…

  • Karen Distazio September 10, 2017, 8:31 am

    Just love the double wide tiny house!!!Gorgeous!!!!

  • Carlos September 10, 2017, 12:04 pm

    How much is this tiny house

  • Michele in CA September 11, 2017, 4:33 pm

    I really like the extra space but not the way they have it set up. There’s too much wasted space in the area in front of the dining room. Not sure why they have different levels. I could rearrange this and definitely make it home.

    • James D. September 11, 2017, 8:45 pm

      Keep in mind when dealing with slide outs that everything still has to fit when they’re pushed in… So you can’t put things where the slide out will be when you push them in and move it…

  • vicki Mizel September 14, 2017, 1:53 am

    I want the double tiny house 500 square feet German made now. I need a phone number to talk to some one as I am seriously interested in a purchase to put on my land in Gold Beach..

    I love sk these Tiny Homes.
    I am considering selling my current home and downsizing to one of these!
    One small issue though; I can never find pricing. It’s hard to dream, with the hope of fruition when I don’t know if it’s even possibly for me.
    Please help. How do I find pricing?

  • Pam November 26, 2017, 9:05 am

    Although I do like the concept of two trailers put together, I see a lot of wasted space in this one. I do like the movable fireplace. There needs to be walls to define the bedroom and office/den area. I feel, unless you have a large family, the dining area is way to large as is the walk-in closet/laundry area. The bathroom could be a little larger and the use of a tub/shower would be nice. I guess this would be nice for someone who likes the idea of going tiny, but can’t give up the material things.

  • DIANNE KNOX November 26, 2017, 10:46 am

    This is the one that I want.

  • DIANNE KNOX November 26, 2017, 10:47 am

    How much does this one cost?

  • reese February 2, 2018, 12:59 pm

    I love seeing these alternatives to the standard thow. I have been working on plans for my own thow for some time now. I have had health issues my whole life which means, in spite of having two college degrees, resource insecurity is a constant for me. So the idea of owning an efficient home that provides only what I need is so compelling. Being single, no children, no family means that I can do without many features of a regular house. With my specific health issues, though, there are aspects of most tiny houses that would not work for me. A sleeping loft, for instance would be dangerous for me. Showers aren’t great, even with a shower chair, and having a bath tub is important for pain management, detoxification, and other health reasons. Storage and cooking functionality is important as my diet and supplement regiment are intense, and, since I am, at times, too ill to get out and resources are unpredictable, being as able as I can to keep plenty of what I need on hand is important. But still, being able to live as efficiently as possible, to have the ability to relocate if /when necessary, and to have at least that one bit of security would make all the difference in the world to me. It will most likely never happen for me, but it’s nice to have a dream and I appreciate seeing homes like this that are not the standard model.
